Muscat: Rumours that plastic rice has been sold in Oman's markets have been rejected as fake by the government.

Social media has been awash with rumours that plastic rice is for sale in markets here.

The Ministry of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources announced that it has tested most of the products traded in local markets, and they confirmed that the rice is safe and conforms to the standard specifications.

"The ministry calls on all consumers not to follow such news, which is not based on scientific evidence," the statement added.
